Interesting color. Brown, with an intense golden shimmer in the sunlight.

Something I don't usually do...

 Remember how crazy I was about Ebalay's Golden Green Iridescent polish? I tried it over an oldie but favorite polish of mine - OPI's Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ. I thought the purple-red color would complement the Ebalay nicely. I was right! Look how pretty!  Then I stuck some 3D Nail Seals on. I usually don't use nail stickers because I'm too klutzy to use them right, but these were pretty foolproof.
I love butterflies!

 These little butterflies come with different color crystals too! They're so pretty!

 You get quite a few stickers for only $3.50. Once you seal them with topcoat, they are pretty smooth on the nail and stay on quite nicely.

You can find these and LOTS more nail art stickers at KKCenterHK and of you use the code "willasshinytips" you get 10% off!

These were sent to me for review.

Go Revlon! Moon Candy flaky duo.

 How cool is this!!  I swooned when I saw these. They looked sooo pretty!
This is from the "Moon Candy" display with about seven other duos.

I chose Supernova because the pink flakies were very different from any of the other flakies I own.

 The bottom layer is a dark grey. It applies so smooth and opaque in one swipe.
Unfortunately, as you can see I was a little over-eager and applied the flakies before the first coat had dried suffieciently. Then to add to the mess, my Seche Vite was a little thick.

Not the polishes fault, all user error.
Still looks pretty sweet though! Going to try this again VERY SOON!
Retails for $7.99 at Rite Aid. I bought mine on the 40% off sale and used a Register Reward, so I got it for like $3 bucks. Not too shabby!
